consulate in libya with four americans killed, including ambassador christopher stevens. the president visited the state department earlier today signing a book of condolence in honor of ambassador stevens. flags have been ordered at half-staff at white house and all public buildings for five days to honor the deceased. with 55 days until election, violence in libya and cairo has also become a flash point in the presidential campaign. providing a perfect case study in how these candidates respond to crisis. the president spoke in the rose garden this morning, alongside secretary of state hillary clinton. >> as americans, let us never, ever forget that our freedom is only sustained because our people who are willing to fight for it, to stand up for it, and in some cases lay down their lives for it. today we mourn for more americans who represent the very best of the yat of america. we will not waiver in our commitment to see justice is done for this terrible act. make no mistake, justice will be done. >> as the president has said, mitt romney is new to foreign policy, so he may have wan

crisis in libya, even as the nation continues to mourn the loss of ambassador stevens and three other senior members of the diplomatic staff. the has spoken to the leaders of both libya and egypt, inviting them to step up security while delivering marines and vessels to the region. these demonstrations are spreading to iran, bangladesh, so earlier today secretary of state hillary clinton tried to quell the storm, evoking this nation's founding principles and denouncing the film that provoked such offense. >> america's commitment to religious tolerance goes back to the very beginning of our nation. to us, to me personally, this bombing is disgusting and reprehensible. >> a 42-year-old native of winchester, massachusetts, a former navy s.e.a.l. we didn't learn of his the -- declaring that the president of the united states was somehow in sympathy with mr. daugherty's murderers. today we set the record straight, there was no apology. there was no sympathy for the enemy. there was nothing of the kind. and saying it again, mr. ryan, doesn't make it so. >> i disagree with the original state

's still a lot to go here. but mitt romney, with the libya mess last week, with the tape this week, the politico story, everything, he's just running out of time to convince people that he's human and that he knows how to -- >> he doesn't have -- >> -- he actually has policy details to put in place. >> what he doesn't have is a campaign anymore. he has a permanent damage control operation at odds with itself. and unless they break that, and unless they get to some big message -- by the way, i'm skeptical they can sell an economic message. their their only economic message was if you kind of feel bad, you don't think things are going well, blame him and give me a try. i think we move past that. i think the president has turned this into a choice. whose policies are going to help the economy by favoring the middle class. who favors the few. the middle class going to pay more in taxes so people at the top pay less. so, i think, david, if he goes out and campaigns on his real economic problem, he would actually hurt himself. >> richard -- >> can't get much worse. >> final chance to you

to the deaths of the american ambassador to libya and three other diplomats. a theme that romney reiterated today though in a more muted form. >> syria has witnessed the killing of tens of thousands of people. the president of egypt is a member of the muslim brotherhood. our ambassador to libya was assassinated in a terrorist attack. iran is moving toward nuclear weapons capability. we somehow feel that we're at the mercy of events rather than shaping events. >> now, that is a rather different romney to the one we heard behind closed doors at a certain fund-raiser where he seemed quite will to remain at the mercy of all sorts of events like, say, those in the middle east. >> committed to the elimination of israel and issues i say there's just no way. you move thing along the best way you can and you hope for some degree of stability but you recognize it's going to remain an unsolved problem. >> and, of course, it was in stark contrast to the president who addressed the united nations today on a wide range of issues warning iran that time is running short for a diplomatic resolution to their

cockeyed comments on libya. this week, let's see, i might go with triumph the insult because if he's got at anything, it's insulting people. >> that's fair enough. >> krystal, mitt romney has gone on to that vigorous and demanding broadcast on fox news and he has doubled down on the actual things he said that were secretly recorded. indeed, you watched the interview. >> i found it remarkable actually. at first he troo i had to spin and say i was just talking about the politics of it but ultimately he basically reiterated the point that 47% of americans don't pay income tax, and so they're not going to be on his side, they're going to support president obama. so i found it remarkable that even in that moment he continues to reiterate the same point. the other piece that i found very interesting and also very inlightening is he was asked about some comments from donald trump and he responded, i always value his counsel, donald tru trump's counsel. >> perry, he does lead the president in one category, the number of hastily arranged news conferences where he says or does something stupid. ta

about libya or talking about yemen. the man knows nothing about those places either. >> that's right. but in this case, the fact that he knows nothing about it and has no policy difference with the president to recommend. he has absolutely nothing to say in relation to what the president is actually doing in afghanistan. so now to have a live fire war going on and to have a presidential nominee give his speech about where he sees his country going and to ignore -- to ignore that he has people in uniform in afghanistan facing fire every day, to ignore that is, i think, the biggest owe mission that any nomination speech has ever had. >> it is remarkable, i think. tonight's the night, lawrence. what does the president have to do to build on what's already happened in this convention. >> here's what we look for president obama speaking at his convention. this will be his third convention speech. three conventions in a row. his first was at john kerry's convention in 2004. that was the best speech of that convention by far. his second speech was four years later in denver. that was the be

. >>> it's time now to "clear the air." after the events in libya last week and continuing protests across the islamic world, there's been the usual republican rush to blame the president which was started by mitt romney and continued by others. >> what we're watching develop before our eyes today are the direct consequences of this administration's policy of apology and appeasement across the globe. >> one of the simple things that michele bachmann and mitt romney can't seem to understand is the difference between the public and private approaches of this president. in public he's been relational and engaging, seeking dialogue with islamic nations, but in private he's been ruthless and aggressive launching relentless drone strikes and pursuing al qaeda with a zeal that borders on the obsessional. as john kerry said at the convention, ask osama bin laden if he's better off now than four years ago. but mitt romney is not only blind to the present, he also seems ignore rabbit of the past. islamic anger and unrest has plagued virtually every president since jimmy carter whether republican or

dyson, i have to intervene because unlike his performance over the issue of libya where he offered us a premature interjection, he's actually somewhat late, but he is arriving in front of the crowd in sarasota, florida, and here he is on the stage. we will have more for our viewers later, but, gentlemen, jonathan, michael eric dyson, and matt miller, thank you all. >> thank you. >>> next, the polls don't lie. we could be at a turning point in the race for 2012. stay with us. >> it's time to admit the romney campaign is an incompetent one. wrong, peggy! that time was six months ago. you can't argue with nutrition you can see. great grains. great grains cereal starts whole and stays whole. see the seam? more processed flakes look nothing like natural grains. i'm eating what i know is better nutrition. mmmm. great grains. search great grains and see for yourself. on december 21st polar shifts will reverse the earth's gravitational pull and hurtle us all into space. which would render retirement planning unnecessary. but say the sun rises on december 22nd, and you still need to retire. td

. under cover of bad polls and his comments on libya and the 47%, romney says he's paying close to $2 million on income of about $14 million for an effective rate of about 14%. however, compare that with mitt's estimate in april of his 2011 return. he's off on all three counts, particularly his income where he's off by a third. joining us in washington is jared bernstein and in harrisburg, pennsylvania, robert traynor, both msnbc contributors. thank you to both of you. jared, can you explain this to me? mitt romney does not appear to be very good at math. he estimates -- the estimates he gave in april were considerably off the amount that's been announced today. is that typical of a man who understands how the private sector works? >> well, look, i mean, his taxes are going to be very different than that of most of the rest of us, and as you mentioned in the earlier panel, there was a lot of adjustments made in order to hit a particular target. so i think that all that means is one year you're going to adjust one way, one year you're going to adjust another. remember, these are not --
